A man was seriously wounded Sunday morning in the West Englewood neighborhood on the South Side.

At 3:22 a.m., the 32-year-old walked into Holy Cross Hospital with a gunshot wound to his abdomen, according to Chicago police. He had been standing outside in the 6800 block of South Winchester when he was shot.

The man was transferred in serious condition to Mount Sinai Hospital, police said.

Officers spotted Travis Smith, 31, running southbound on Winchester with “a large black handgun,” according to police. He was arrested and charged with a felony count of unlawful use of a weapon by a felon.

It was not immediately clear whether he was the shooter and the investigation into the shooting was ongoing Monday morning, police said.
